Never did find out what was going on, but it stopped after a week.
Possible that your non-active pots line was malfunctioning. I've seen that happen up here in Canada, one guy on DSLreports in the canchat forum had 911 being called from his place for nearly 3 months until Bell finally fixed the problem.

Didn't that happen to Blue a number of years ago? I severed my line to the house long ago.

Fast Facts - first item was "this was originally a driving game" which is what I said it felt like.....heh.

That's what sorta blows my mind. It started off as a Driver game, but yet the vehicle handling (which is pretty decent once ya turn off the accelerations in the settings file) isn't as good as the last Driver game, nor is the city big enough either. I just don't understand why they didn't spend more time getting the 'weight' of the cars nailed down more.
\

Agreed, but I just find a personal win in calling that out not knowing this fast fact. Like I said, it feels like a Driver game with running elements thrown in. But said Driver game is 3-5 years old, this just has "updated" graphics.

If you really were one, you'd be keeping a log, and be able to answer immediately when someone asked you. See how easy that is? And how wrong?

Hah, bad example to pick. If he has records access he can do a pretty simple query to figure that out, and what he did on the calls, and at what times. And if you want to get crazy you could even know how many miles the car he took had on it and the equipment loaded into it. Who dispatched the call, the caller's name and address

The point is she was in an interview and answering off the cuff. If Bats was asked a similar question he wouldn't have time to check the records, he'd just say "thousands" or whatever. It's ridiculous to nitpick semantics like that, and reveals the mind of the nitpicker.

Those questions are e-mailed...not sure you know that....

So...this just came to me.....I have done no less than 50 foot chase scenarios with NPCs....and every single time it is in a damn near straight line, doesn't do much but maybe jump over a trash can....maybe look back and shoot at me. Never once have I had to go down stairs, up stairs, climb buildings, etc. And that was all shown in one of those first videos.....wtf happened? Most of this stuff in the video is trivial at best! How do they not have those final touches with all of the delays?

I assume the delays were for all the side crap - that is very poorly exectuted. I went 20 rounds in the VR shooting game, and that was 19 rounds to much. Some dude went 130+ rounds in that! (per scoreboard) It is boring as hell!

Just watched the TotalBiscuit WTF Is video, and he chases a guy over fences and shit...


Yea have done that - but the first video showed parkour chases....i dunno....underwhelmed....

Okay, I admit that made me crack up.

MJ: So how many video games have you played in the name of "research"?

AS: A few hundred so far.


BS! No reason to read any further....if she played a LOT, she would have the exact number as she would be keeping a log and notes on each game, and she would call out certain games as examples. She is full of herself. Being "Only" 30 isn't helping her at all.....almost every game behind her was created before she was born....
Really, Bats? Do you know off the top of your head exactly how many calls your responded to in the last six months? No? Well, then you must not really be a police officer. If you really were one, you'd be keeping a log, and be able to answer immediately when someone asked you. See how easy that is? And how wrong?

Well, 10-30 calls a night depending on the week, 3 on 3 off, so half of those nights in 6 months times 20, a hell of a lot closer than her "hundreds". In fact, we do have a log, and I could tell you EXACTLY if I was in the office. In fact, I could tell you what I did every day of my career if given some time...and in all honesty I could probably speak to everything on the log in a hell of a lot of detail....

I am also not doing a video series on my job and how x,y,z it is and how many calls I went on.....ayone know her Steam profile? I call bs still. Had she said "about 150" that is something I can grasp. She just isn't credible. She is seeking attention and she is getting it. On top of that, she is exploting an idea that she doesn't believe in for financial gain.....complaining about getting threats of physical harm, but making money on a "game" about getting beat up.....ok then.

Anyway,

My mother, however, had been on hundreds of calls and had never known the dispatcher to be wrong so went to the house anyway. The same woman answered and said, "Oh thank God you're here." Turns out she was vaginally bleeding, but would have rather bled out than let the male cop help her. It's a good argument that in public service both genders are essential.

pffft. I have been on THOUSANDS (more than 12,000) of calls and dispatchers are wrong ALL LOT MORE THAN NEVER! I have also been on "bleeds" in the same situation - never been told not to come in. Usually I just lock up for them as they run out to the ambo. And a comment like "don't go in that room" is sometimes said as she is running out the door.....I feel bad for people in those situations - to them it is traumatic, but to police/fire/emt, it is just another day/another call. Isn't personal and I don't judge.

1. Sexism is a huge issue in the world, even in "civilized" and "liberal" countries like the US. Women have fewer opportunities, women make much less money for equivalent positions, misogyny in the workplace, culture, etc. is still pretty rampant.

Clearly you've never worked in Hospitality where it's the exact opposite of that. Tourism, cosmetics, teaching, nursing, accounting, et al. are all female dominated. There are plenty of places where they have more opportunity, make more money, etc. So what was the complaint again exactly? That a woman steel worker wbo physically can't compete with a male should be considered and paid the same? Ummmmmmm no.

That is the EXACT argument they make. Same in law enforcement. I was in a course with a girl who couldn't do a push up.......not sure I need to say much more....

she then cited a few indie games that didn't have sexist representations yet neglected to mention the numerous high-profile, mainstream games like Bioshock, Last of Us, Walking Dead, Remember Me, Portal, Tomb Raider, Saints Row, Fallout, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Wolf Among Us, Assassin's Creed, The Bureau, XCOM, WH40K: Space Marine, Splinter Cell, etc.
I rest my case.....

We have many calls like that. Also trees hanging in yards, someone cutting their grass, nrighbor cutting their OWN grass, someone cut their tree limbs, someone put snow in my yard, and one of my favorites "mom calling because 3rd grader won't go to school"...... *sigh

We've got a neighbor who's tree is completely leaning against our fence, it's already popped out a board and its pushing the entirety of the fence; they refuse to do anything about it. While it's not come even close to calling the police, I can understand how annoying things can be.

Best to call city inspections. Their financial pressure will be enough for them to fix it.

ok....game is now a 8/10.

Gripes:
Some of the invasion stuff is annoying. Can hack someone, then run away for a while, but once you hit about 500 meters, then you lose them. So if you don't initiate the hack, you have to catch them to do it, there is a timer. The shitty part about that, is that if you get hacked, it can take you a good 30 seconds to get to the hack area.....I dunno. Needs to be tightened up a bit.

Car damage is lame. There is little to no damage modifier, model damage, etc. I augured my car in at 100+ mph and it bounced off and lost a bumper. I expected to die and I just bounced. Lame.

ANyway. 2 biggest ones.

The more I play the more this grows on me, i would like to see some tweaks to the PvP invasions - but right now, everyone is so bad at it, that I just own.....took me a bit to figure out some tricks, and now i rarely lose.

Hiding like a bitch, I mean a BOSS!

Should take it offline sometime....they actually lower standards in many jobs/areas to hire people....

The 2 corporate jobs I worked - IT was packed with Indians (dot). Almost all of the developers where Indian. IT Tech support was white women and men. Most of them in IT support were older.....

Just the light engine changes alone are immediately obvious, garish and overdone in the retail release.

It is a fun game without a doubt and the audio logs make it all the more interesting.

Funny that at 8am I'm actually having problems logging into uplay, only took me 4 attempts. Oh and if there is *one* thing that pisses me off to no end is that it refuses to accept my settings so it will run in full screen. Not windowed.

Almost every time I start the game it is in Window mode, even though I set it to fullscreen every time I play. Great job guys.

Add me to UPlay you guys!

hahhaha Beats are garbage. Trendy assholes with more money than common sense LOVE these headphones. I giggle every time I see people with them on at the poker room.
